Individuals respond differently to CBD products. Even people who have similar conditions may respond differently. Finding the right amount of CBD to use will require a little trial and error. This is based on our genetics and personal differences. One person may require just a few drops, while another person may require large amounts. People who are in better health tend to require lower amounts to help them maintain balance and function optimally, compared to those that may be far off balance or further into a diseased state. Some individuals will require larger amounts to restore balance also called “homeostasis” to the body. Once they become healthier they can then lower the amount they use. As Medical Cannabis Expert Dr. Sulak D.O. with Healer.com states “Start low & go slow”.
Pre-clinical research indicates that full spectrum CBD is effective at much lower doses and has a wider therapeutic window than a CBD isolate. “The therapeutic synergy observed with plant extracts results in the requirement for a lower amount of active components, with consequent reduced adverse side effects,” a 2015 Israeli study concluded.
Again it is important to emphasize, the amount of CBD to use varies from person to person. Dosage is based on individuals’ goals and physician recommendations. Some people choose to use CBD to achieve optimal health, while others choose to use CBD to help alleviate physical symptoms associated with ill health. Before using CBD products, it is recommended you schedule a Complimentary CBD Consultation with our Certified Cannabis & CBD Advisor Dr. Jeff Cullers.
Although there are many different delivery methods of CBD products (vapes, edibles, candies, oils, topicals, etc.) many recommend using CBD orally and topically. Studies have recommended starting with a small amount of CBD. Typical usage is to start with 1/3 of a dropper (equal to approx. 5-9 drops) placed under the tongue once daily for a few days. Gradually increase the amount until you achieve the desired result. If necessary, CBD can be taken 2-3 times daily.
The effects of consuming CBD orally can take from 5-15 minutes and last from 2-6 hours.
The benefit of using CBD Salves is to treat local pain or inflammation.
The benefit of using CBD Skin Creams is to treat skin conditions or itching of the skin.
Although there is no established lethal dose of CBD, consumers need to read all product information and consult with their physician prior to use.
Furthermore, the information presented here is not meant as a substitute for or alternative to information from health care practitioners. Much like the consumption of poppy seeds may lead to a positive drug test for opioids, the consumption of certain hemp products may lead to a positive drug test for THC. Most workplace drug screens target THC and do not detect CBD, Premier US HEMP™ products do contain trace amounts of THC, however, the amount of THC stored in fat cells depends on each individual person’s metabolism. Although the risk is low, Premier US HEMP™ cannot guarantee that THC will be absent in a drug test. We strongly suggest consulting your health care provider before consuming any hemp products if you are subject to drug testing. Premier US HEMP™ and its associates assume no liability in association with persons knowingly purchasing and using Premier US HEMP™ products who are subject to employment drug testing or screening.
